I'm not gonna mess with tethering until it's official. But once it is, look out! I may just get my own laptop (instead of bumming my parents') to celebrate! (Right after I pick those winning lotto numbers or finish school and get a better job, whichever comes first! )

VoIP may be another thing. They are sufficiently concerned about their fragile business model and it is sufficiently easy to recognize that they may notice that.
Their control through Apple is sufficiently effective that they are not likely to worry about what happens at the margin.

We are paying the price for the special breaks that we gave them in the thirties that warped their business model. It saddled them with debt secured by things, like copper and switches, that are now obsolete. They did not modernize fast enough and they did not pay off the debt fast enough.
Level 2 is now a commodity, and while one can move any bit as cheaply as any other, not all bits are of equal value. They have to hide the commodity so that only they can sell the value-added services where the money is. Eventually the Congress and the regulators will get wise. Eventually competition will come back into the market.
In the meantime, we are all getting cheaper services as the result of competition in the 90s. Imagine if we were trying to do all this with distance-based tariffs of earlier years.

tethering and iphone..
here is my understanding on this matter.
if you update to 3.1 att can decifer between iphone and laptop. i am using 3.0 still with jailbreak and a hacked IPCC file. I have had no troubles with mms and tethering.
I use it from time to time with my netbook.
you have to use it in moderation otherwise you will be sniped by att. moderate browsing and some downloading here and there is okay, torrents and large files being 400+ mb are not.
use your own common sense.

So those of you foolish enough to give up 3.0 and tethering for MMS and 3.1 are nuts because 3.0 is the only firmware that supports BOTH for free.
Soon tethering will be enabled but to get it you will have to pay 60 bucks a month on top of your minutes and the data plan. F THAT!
